Spent mid-afternoon at Alum Cr. Res. on Tues. 5/13. Waded around the cove at north end of the swimming beach without much luck. I thought the north end of res. would probably be too murky. I fished 1/16th oz. jigs under a bobber at varying depths around sunken brush and bullrushes. I dressed jig hooks with little "Crappie Nibbler" nuggets. I caught one small crappie in the weed stick-ups in about 18" of depth. I had one other little hit in the same area. I knew the "blue-bird" weather and cold front wouldn't bode well, but thought maybe the crappies would be in spawning "frenzy" mode. Not so! I finally gave up on crappies and tried tossing a 3 1/2" "Gulp" shad, swim-bait in the chute below the dam. Tossed it until I lost it to a snag after 20 or 30 throws. My 63rd spring is not very fishy, yet, but a lot of you are doing better. Keep it up!! Thinkin' about getting a two-man "fold-cat" pontoon boat w/trollin' motor. http://www.seaeagle.com That'll help things a bit!
